I am very excited that in the new year 2018, I will offering some small and intimate workshops of no more than 9 attendees and cost £30 for a two hour workshop. I want to offer a space to connect and share together. They will be bespoke for the age groups of the attendees in the workshop. I have spent thirty years in the NHS working with adults and children that are sometimes emotionally dysregulated which causes distress and can lead to long term mental health difficulties.

Like you, I am mum too and helped my children through all the highs, lows , frustrations with a good dose of mistakes from baby to adulthood. I know through this experience that understanding their behavior and temperament with brain based parenting techniques has led them to be able to manage their emotions and have good social relationships. Why would I not want to share that knowledge to help you and your children to enjoy being connected and have a good relationships with you and others.

All my workshops are based on experience, sound evidenced based clinical knowledge and neuroscience, change your habits now and set good intentions for 2018, contact me to book.
